The message, sent on Sunday afternoon, received a quick reply:

Sun also invited Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire to the lunch, a fete for which he paid a $4.57 million donation.

The TRON founder said they would dine in  San Francisco, a location seen as a "power move" by Sun over the so-called Oracle of Omaha.

“I’m a long-term believer (and certainly a big fan) of Buffett and his long-term value investing strategy” wrote Sun on Medium.

, an exchange platform, launched a full crypto exchange (via eToroX) in April of this year and the founder, Assia, is supporting an organization called GoodDollar aimed at "establishing an economic framework designed to reduce global wealth inequality via UBI-based models."
